Event description
Not your typical open mic. This one centers on your story of postpartum, in your way, in front of a friendly audience. Happy hour too!

About this Event

Join us for an evening of storytelling, sharing our postpartum experiences with each other.

Whether they are poems, essays, songs, photos, paintings or personal stories, whether funny or heartbreaking, these experiences are important and there is power in coming together around them. In addition to open mic, this will be a fun happy hour with wine, bites and community.

Content Warning: Due to the nature of this topic, this event may include content triggering for survivors of peri or postpartum related trauma.

How to Participate

Presentations should be 5-7 minutes long and can be any combination of spoken word, sound and visuals. To help us with planning, please take a moment to submit a short summary of what you plan to share here. There will also be a sign-up sheet at the event, if slots are still open. People of Color, gender non-conforming, or those with a disability are especially encouraged to participate. To ensure a safe and inclusive space for all, any hate speech or discriminatory language is not welcome.
